Enabling Email Notifications

PrivX can automatically notify approvers when a new request requires their attention. This can happen when a new request is created, or when a request proceeds to a new step.

  1. To enable automatic email notifications, configure PrivX against an existing SMTP server. You can set the relevant email settings from the PrivX GUI, on the Settings→Workflows page.

  2. If the email-server connection uses TLS, the email-server root-CA certificate must be added to the system-wide trust anchors on your PrivX servers. To do this, copy the root-CA certificate under /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors/, then run:

    # update-ca-trust extract
